Pizza_OlgaNayashkova_ThinkStock-300x241I'm guessing that you love pizza and probably couldn't give it up permanently. Does that mean we are addicted to pizza?

Apparently there's a reason it takes every last bit of willpower not to eat that fifth slice of pizza. According to a study plos.org, pizza is the most addicting food.The ten most addictive foods are:  Pizza . . . chocolate . . . chips . . . cookies . . . ice cream . . . French fries . . . cheeseburgers . . . soda . . . cake . . . and cheese.

The ten LEAST addictive are:  Cucumbers . . . carrots . . . beans . . . apples . . . brown rice . . . broccoli . . . bananas . . . salmon . . . corn . . . and strawberries.

The fact that we aren't addicted to any healthy foods makes me a little angry. All of the addicting foods have two things in common: They're processed . . . and they're high in fat.

They say pizza is number one because of a protein in the milk called casein.  When the casein breaks down in your system, it can actually trigger the same parts of your brain as drugs. What?
